Conference Venue and Accommodation

We chose Quality Hotel Noah’s on the Beach in Newcastle East as the conference venue for SPSSI-SASP 2019 because of its ocean view conference facilities, friendly staff, its mid-range costs, and its proximity to public transport. As the climate is excellent, in April/May you will still be able to have a swim in the ocean and in the evening enjoy one of the many restaurants, cafes, wine bars and evening entertainments that are walking distance from the conference hotel.
